Jamestown Settlement, Virginia 

The Commonwealth of Virginia operates Jamestown Settlement, a living history museum that exhibits artifacts and recreations of what life was like when the first successful English settlement thrived in the 1600’s in the New World.

Visitors may see a replica of a Native American village.

There are plants and poultry as well which were part of trading at that time.

Chicken


And of course, replicas of the ships which brought the settlers to the New World.


Jamestown Settlement is not part of the National Park Service. There’s a fee to view the exhibits. Kids, I’m sure will enjoy exploring the outdoor exhibits at Jamestown Settlement.
